Underscores in constructors #10

Hi, I believe this is a bug in lhs2Tex-hl.
When there is an underscore in a constructor declaration, e.g.:

data FOO = Bar_A | Bar_B

the formatting generated is

%format Bar_A = " {\lhsCHconstructor{Bar_{A}}}"

which causes LaTeX to choke, as the underscore is not in a math environment.
Maybe outputting an escaped underscore

%format Bar_A = " {\lhsCHconstructor{Bar\_{A}}}"

or formatting the whole thing as a subscript

%format Bar_A = " {\lhsCHconstructor{Bar$_{A}$}}"

would be possible solutions.



Btw, uncommenting line 14 in Language/LaTeX.hs seems to make it work, though I haven't been able to test whether it breaks something else.

. replace "_" "\\_"


The idea is that the system takes care of some formatting for you when you insert a _. Apparently that is broken now, I will look into it.


Ok, I had understood that from the documentation as well.
